Green Zebras Print on Hemp Paper, Tree Free & Sustainable
Hand dyed and silk-screen printed by artisans in Kathmandu. If you hold the paper up to the light you can see the plant fibres in the paper.
Use… Its use is not just limited to crafts ( collages, mixed media, decorative book-binding, scrap-booking, calligraphy, printmaking ) but it would be a fantastic eco-friendly alternative to gift wrapping your special presents or simply as eco friendly packaging.
Living Traditions & Wildcrafting… For over 1000 years handmade paper has been produced in the mountainous area of Nepal. The raw material is collected in the wild, taking care not to disturb the plant's roots. The boiled bark is beaten with wooden mallets, producing a soft pulp which is poured over screened wooden frames floating in a pond, and spread evenly by gently shaking. The frame is then removed and dried in the Himalayan sunshine and the resulting paper peeled off the frame. It is entirely handmade.
